Designed by Donnie Thompson
The Thompson Fat Pad™ by Rogue is the proper bench pad to maximize power and minimize injury.
Donnie Thompson (checkout his bio below!) invested seven years of research in creating the Fat Pad™.
- Promote Scapular movement
- Eliminate Shoulder Hangover
- Optimizes Back and Upper body Positioning
- Increases mechanic leverages
Benefits of the additional thickness and width:
- Scapular movement is uninhibited and eliminates AC tears
- Very little to NO Translational loading
- Common Pec Tweaks are a thing of the past!
- Angry Humeral wear on the bicep tendon and soft tissue GONE!
The Thompson Fat Pad™ is designed to bolt onto any Rogue Flat Bench. It has a plywood bottom that enables it to be mounted to most other benches as well. Drilling and additional hardware may be required if you are mounting to a non Rogue product.

"I have had zero shoulder injuries in my weight room since I have been using your Fat Pads. Not only do they work great, these big athletes like the comfort of them when they bench. They hate going home and using their old benches!"
